Womens Day Off

Nov 26 2015 Published by under Uncategorized

The Living Art Museum is contributing to Konsthall C one day symposium investigating collective practices and their relationships to political organising.

The symposium is particularly inspired by the ‘Women’s Day Off’, a strike that happened in Iceland in 1975 that sought to highlight and make visible women’s work within the home. The strike is one of the most impressive acts of women’s organising to challenge gender inequality in Northern Europe. Presentations and discussions throughout the day build on ideas of collective working and art’s relationship to political organising.
